Terraced house, now offices. 1788. Yellow brick set in Flemish
bond with Coade stone dressings, roof obscured by parapet.
Four storeys, two-window range. Steps up to round-arched
entrance with vermiculated quoins, fluted impost and head
keystone, all probably in Coade stone; panelled reveals to
doorway, doorcase with pilasters, cornice, fanlight and
panelled door of original design; segmental-arched carriage
entrance to right side with head keystone, also probably of
Coade stone, and festooned spandrels; cornice. Upper windows
flat-arched with gauged brick heads; moulded brick cornice;
parapet. Cast-iron railings to steps.
The interior has a staircase with wreathed and ramped
handrail, stick balusters and open string. The ceiling of the
first-floor front room has five roundel paintings, depicting
Architecture, Music, Painting and Sculpture, probably by the
elder Thomas Stowers, landscape painter, who lived at 22
Charterhouse Square from 1788 until at least 1811.
